Thomas EDGAR or "Tom" as he was known by family and friends is buried in the Rose City Cemetery, Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon. It appears he clipped nearly 7 years off his age by the time of his death in 1924. I have his birth year well documented in the 1870-80-1900-1910-1920 censuses. He was born in June 1849. He appears to have adopted the middle initial "K" following the death of his much loved (1st) wife : Mary Catherine KRATZER Edgar. Tom was briefly married (soon divorced) after he moved to Oregon circa 1912.
